10:20 pm
year for the warriors to call the bay area their home today we literally break the ground now the term groundbreaking is a noun refers to turning the earth to begin construction but websters has another definition meaning initiative or unprecedented that's going to be chase center and this is warriors ground groundbreaking in every sense thank you. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, mayor brown for making a big entrance thank you. >> now my pleasure to introduce a man the man that reached out to us we're here to welcome the warriors stuck with
10:21 pm
us through thick and thin has things got rocky edwin m lee is the 43rd mayor he started at a housing rights attorney with an activist heart in 2010 he was chosen by the boarding to take over when lieutenant governor's gavin newsom left from the beginning championed this was one of the main reasons we're able to broub ladies and gentlemen, our point number 43 mayor ed lee. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, rick what a wonderful day i know every one of you see existed to be here today and finally welcoming the

without an inside venue of 10 thousand seats when that opened in 2019 the chase center will make history not only as a home for the gooirdz but as the only 100 percent privately financed arena in the entire country of the united states. >> (clapping.) >> this no, this is no small feat as every at mba in public land includes the taxpayer money in its construction not here in san francisco the warriors are paying for this venue they reprimand remind me of that constantly on the land they perturbed is an accomplishment and speaks volumes to the commitments of ownership and sets the bar in our city what we're all about and speaking of

what we're all about how about what is this team all about isn't that great yeah. >> (clapping.) >> what a game last night as was pointed out most all the greatest things we saw last night in that game coach let me help you and all of us define a infrastructure grant foul i think a infrastructure grant foul is any delay in opening the chase center in san francisco that's a infrastructure grant foul of those warriors have the best record in the mba leading in the league in almost every category have the best starting rotation in the mba and, of course, they captured the imagination of the most casual
10:25 pm
of basketball fa (calling names) waits not to love. >> (clapping.) >> so the real question is coach how far will you go? and, of course, (laughter) all the way; right? ? >> and, of course, the chases center will not only play host to basketball games but a prime designation for world-class companies family shows and convention activities generate over thousand of good paying construction and permanent jobs that jobs that contribute more than enough money to pay for the extended transit service and new light rail vehicles and launch the covering the transportation
10:26 pm
and sculpture costs that serve the entire neighborhood on days without the feptsdz the project will add vitality amenity to mission bay neighborhoods along with a much needed office space and, of course, the warriors are going to be great partners to all our kids in the education system this venue will be a model sustainable design that will include over 3 acres of open space and trigger the development of a 5 and a half acres of public parks right on the waterfront none of this would have been possible without the dedicated commitment of my dear colleague jennifer the former head of the city's office of economic workforce development who tragically passed away from cancer over 2
10:27 pm

10:47 pm
you're here with the shovels i was wondering if this was what was thrown at us over the last four and a half years (laughter) the best goals always started as a dream and the people give it a time limit all our group to help made this happen so for the opening is the world-class venue required 9 years 9 years who but dreamers would undertake that kind of a journey you have to be a dreamer and allow yourselves to be pulled through it has to pull you and compel and make you go over all the obstacles and believe in that dreamers they face all the way down kinds of things and
10:48 pm
difficulties but push forward their dyslexia they push, push, push to get they are goals done. >> we all draw if past references certainly for our dreams i had mine in the entertainment business the entertainment business you have a lot of surveys they use the f word and boy it hurts but have to give up we had a lot of bumps those bumps made us stronger and better and the changes made us better i've had films that takes 5 years to get made and shown in the theatre willie brown we built together the audience was so upset and stormed out of the theatre and shock the limousine how you handle the corrections and how you do that determines
10:49 pm
our ultimate outcome always determines the outcome you make necessary changes the men and women in our organization we speak to and for today none westbound passengers all worked the three has made the different their tongue and wallet traveled in the same direction you believed them and they could lead you to o so the infrastructure grant fouls all because of the groundbreaking probably not next time builds a range of people and thing that will be protesting we'll see it through we haven't started shooting this movie you hear something say let's see a film on budget no, we have to do the
10:50 pm
work our teem with all the bumps in the road rather we doubled down on the commitment to see it through and shape our dream much more to realize much more we can't suffer the faded of prematurity jubilation but our perseverance and determination will see us through but this dream is more than a venue of concrete you'll attract the artists they'll be drawn to this vessel in san francisco so perform and be the beacon and live and work rod other teams the glorious political events every city needs e needs one it is con superstitious but why is
10:51 pm
it so important because this we are not vigil people we're analogies we chore the diversity of our species men and women and different gender and everything sharing laughing and crying together that's the purpose of those campfires and those venues every city needs it it had been great for san francisco. >> (clapping.) >> think of the essence of products with the house of dreams our dreams and children's dreams and shared expense the key won't would be the aptitude but the attitude of the builders did attitudes puts an to do on stare resides and attitude makes the difference show me someone
10:52 pm
with great attitude i'll show you a hit a success. >> so the key to us now is to build it to get it done more action and less talk the whole damn process will be fought with parietal we have to cast it away and keep that vision strong and pull it pull up to it. >> nelson mandela said to me this misguided adversary can't take away your dreams colleagues this will continue to challenge you they'll scare you but keep you motivated you'll take greater focus to get us they're up there let's hope we didn't come this far to come this far yesterday is not the dedication
10:53 pm
only a station to realize this dream go for the great and enjoy the journey it is show time god speed. >> (clapping.) >> that was show time. >> (clapping.) >> you know you mentioned greatness anytime you can be part of the group that is a greatest we think about the greatest players in mba history and rick berry and the late person we lost in july. >> (clapping.) >> our next speaker is one of the 50 most powerful women in business. >> (clapping.) >> hello. >> ladies and gentlemen,

we have bob has been an amazing partner an amazing general manager but an even better friend in his mind when you put together a group of people that are committed to each other and the franchisee and to the warriors special things can happen that's exactly what happened here i want to make one final point about the ownership the fact that arena is privately functions is so important because i've before a sports man fanning any whole life living in san diego the late 12 years the charges were ripped away from that community i know there are a lot of economic factors and political issues you have an ownership group that recognizes they don't really own the team they write the checks but the
11:03 pm
community owns the team that's true. >> (clapping.) >> but the bay area owns the team and they have a tremendous task as guardian of franchise and their taking on tremendous risk with the financial commitments at no cost to the city that is almost unheard of these days in professional sports i want to acknowledge that with an o vacation. >> (clapping.) >> the best way to mitigate it risk to put a great team have our business did not have a great product to sell we're fortunate we've been able to do that we only enhanced that with the arrival of the k d and.
11:04 pm
>> (clapping.) >> and i can be very honest when i say that is a thrill a enjoy to coach and team as talented as this group and more gratifying to come to work everyday and enjoy the playgrounds for who they are as human beings kevin is representing our team today, our roster other guys are practicing potrero and i are taking the day off we earned it after last night. >> (clapping.) >> but ultimately what will make that building successful it the fans and the fan base that has supported this franchisee and the players who are playing high-level basketball in providing entertainment so at that point i'd like to bring up
11:05 pm

11:24 pm
thank you to our police department our city attorney, the other department heads for joining us along with our board representatives and elected officials. this was a very important decision that i got to make because of the voters. and it's both an obligation, a treasured opportunity for a mayor to make any time there's a vacancy and of course our legislative body and having conversed with quite a number of supervisors both present and past, having had the opportunity, other determined this opportunity, to talk with many residents, merchants, and people of district 8 from all of the wonderful corridor of this very diverse district, from having had many discussions with those that were very interested to help lead this district and the city
11:25 pm
to make sure that our city was safe, wonderfully diverse, making sure that all the things that we are trying to do as a city continued more importantly today than ever before, to be a welcoming city. a diverse city. a city of both san francisco values but also a city that took care of things. for everyone. and i heard it from literally every single neighborhood that i had the privilege to talk with. they said they wanted somebody who was a replica of scott weiner. >>[laughing] so i set about -cheering >>[cheerring] to say first of all scott that's my way of saying thank you for being such a great partner >>[cheerring]. we have enjoyed your advocacy, your passion, your craziness, 24-7 but
11:26 pm
everybody enjoyed it and it was you know he has both large shoes to fill in a height that i try to deal with as well. >>[laughing] but you know as we go up to second meadow we will have a tremendously another friend to really help us as a city and region so scott, congratulations, but also thank you. thank you for being such a great strong supporter and you know, i set about to try to find a replica. there's no such way we could do it. in fact, i agreed with all the community leaders from no we valley from diamond heights, glenn part, from all of the different districts, castro and upper market and so forth to find and we agreed there is no way we can replicate but we can have in our hearts a selection of somebody who is
11:27 pm
aspirational, who is passionate, whose love of the city and people, whose past advocacy is the strong but also solution orientated. whose recent professional life has been really to find solutions to one of the most challenging issues of all of our time and whose early days and i guess was pretty strong-but no less stronger than the passions that i felt before i became a government official as well is that we have to advocate for those who needed that representation. i found out that person in jeff sheehy and i found someone who not only has the passion and commitment but represents a diversity that complements our board, represents a intellect that is
11:28 pm
very deep. has a passion for neighborhoods. happens to emanate from my neighborhood but also a parent. a parent of a lovely daughter in public school. >>[applause], yes, michelle. and who i think who has not only through interviews but as we studied what he has done and as we listened to not just neighborhood leaders, and residents, but even other candidates under consideration said that they were also considering the activities that we found in jeff camp, and i know this can be much more sad as he takes the oath and as he gets sworn in this weekend, but i want to say that i, again,
11:29 pm
listened very carefully to what people were saying. we talked a lot about actually is and qualifications of the person and every neighborhood leader, every resident, every merchant said i want someone who is crazily involved and engaged. who will answer every question. who will be something doing more than just solving the immediate problem that we asked them to, but dig in and say what is the policy issue here? what are we really trying to find as an answer that is sustainable, not just a temporary treatment of something. in jeff we found somebody whose spirit is getting to zero, whose spirit is in advocacy for those that are this enfranchised, whose spirit and honesty and intellect is
11:30 pm
very very clear to me and who will be engaged with the residents of this entirely very diverse district called district 8. i found that in jeff. i found his passion. i found his love of people and i found someone who is already demonstrated in his own life a life history that i want to see to make sure that the history of our city is well intact along with the forward thinking solution orientated, pragmatic practical, yet values. person. and so, it is my privilege to introduce to you the next supervisor of district 8, the two comment that we want to have some of jeff sheehy. >>[applause]
11:31 pm
>> so first i want to-let me see if i can get this-first i want to thank mayor lee. i am honored, humbled, just overdone by his confidence in need i know this economy and unbelievably challenging job. i know it's personal to them because like you said, we are neighbors. and i want to-i got other neighbors out here in the audience. i want to thank the members of san francisco family who turned out today. some of you i don't four years and we work together. some of you i'm going to get to know and i look forward to working together. you know, i live in clinical and partly i been doing politics were living in this district since 1994. i have walked all over. you know, michelle and i, right?. okay
11:32 pm
man go so we been everywhere. everywhere. >>[applause] i mean how many we've gone i don't know. speaking of michelle, one of the things i want to really acknowledge is that the mayor did not appoint a person.. he appointed a family. you know, my husband >>[applause]. >>[laughing]. you know i'm not sure i would be-i am not being facetious but i'm not sure i would be here today if not for him. almost 18 years. michelle, i mean the love of our lives. everything we do we do for michelle. i think that is the way we feel about all the kids in our district. you know and i think sometimes in san francisco we get caught up in a lot of big issues but the kids here, you
11:33 pm
know, this is our future. and if we don't do right by our kids we are not creating the right future for the city. >>[applause] so, we talked about potholes and i don't know if i can do what scott and kevin and mark had done on that but it is my aim to try as hard as i can. i'm not in this job, you know i'm not here to serve because i want to go to sacramento where i want to go to washington or i want to go to some other room in city hall. i had a career. i've made history. equal benefits basically brought >>[applause]. brought the business community to the side of folks
11:34 pm
the lgbt community went into town to talk about marriage. they were writing up grease for us. not for the other side. because of equal benefits. that was only happening here but happened across the country and other cities in the state of california. i really want to give you shut out to mayor brown the first courage and support of the next good city atty. louise rennie. >>[applause] city atty. dennis herrera. that made his victory possible. you know, so my thing is i really care about our neighborhoods that make up this district. you know, public safety is a big issue for us. it's something when your neighbor standing out in front of your house, two-year-old kid, hold onto her patently with literally in front of my house. and she's got a car seat. she's pulling it out of
11:35 pm
her backseat picking up pieces of glass because her car is broken in spirit there's nothing to steal. and i know, you know i know the department is doing all it can but we have to be there to support the department. because this is a big issue. we have, you know, for people who live here for families who live in this district are streets need to be saved. people need to be able to park on the street and operate out being broken into at least two aiken three times in nearly outside my window there's been a car with a broken window. and it's a tough challenge and i really i read about the innovative work the department is doing and so we've got to continue to work these folks. so- >>[applause]. my head is to be here for the
11:36 pm
people in our community. i like to talk about-i don't know how many people do into glen park queen juno regularly and the speed of the best hummus and san francisco. michelle is a little kid, right and we are like, oh my god, his kids were working behind the counter, and rima were michelle's babysitters. that's the kind of community that i live in. right? that's the kind of community we all live in. that's why i want to serve is not for grandiose purposes, but as a mayor said, to take care of people's problems and where there is broader policy that can make things better for the people in my district, then to advance those. the other reason i'm really honored to serve is that aiken is a dramatic change for me, but i will be the lgbt supervisor. >>[applause]. these are perilous times. we
11:37 pm
face and existential threat. rights that we fought for and won that women have one, are may be, we may have to fight for them all over again. our gains maybe you raised by what he does with the courts. our immigrant community, you know, it's shameful. these are our neighbors. we have to be here to make sure, and united. i know there's been a lot of classes this that's gone on and i hope because i know people on both sides. aggressive modern, whatever labels you want to use, but we need to be fighting together, right? right? >>[applause] our fight is outside. a particular interest
11:38 pm
to me for me is health care. i've been involved, you know, department of public health. activism for healthcare. i've been at ucsf. perhaps the finest healthcare institution in my mind in the country and perhaps the world. the dedication of the folks at air, which you know, includes some of the finest minds in the world serve the people with some of the-new experience in the worst disparities in at san francisco general. such a monument to the compassion of the city. but with ac eight potentially under attack, medicaid cuts trimmed back, is absolutely essential for my
11:39 pm
respective, and i want to work on, making sure that we don't lose ground in the work that we've done to reduce disparities in access to high-quality health care for all the communities in san francisco. >>[applause]. then, lastly, i would like to talk about the hiv community. this is historic. we've never had somebody openly living with hiv on the board of supervisors and we have been through a lot. we have long-term survivors which i am one. am one of the lucky ones. you know, 30 years ago if you told me i could live to 40, i was like-i don't think so. as friend left and right becoming ill, dying, if you had told me that it be able to get
11:40 pm
married i would not have believed you. and it's astonishing to me i'm going to turn 60 this year. i'm a husband almost 18 years and i held 11-year-old daughter going to public school in san francisco. >>[applause]. but i want to be here for the long-term survivors who have not had the good luck that i have had. that they are not forgotten. you know a lot of what we have in the city and as a community, they fought for. and they did not have the good fortune that i have good and a lot of my fellow, they are feeling like they are feeling forgotten to the feeling isolated. i want them to know that a voice in city hall. they have a partner. but i also want to hearken back to those dark days in san francisco. when
11:41 pm
people were dying. there was no hope. there was hate and so many places in the world. you know, god's fate for you folks. what did san francisco do? it opened its heart. everybody in san francisco came together could perhaps one of the city's finest moments. and i literally would not be here if the city had not come together all across, every you know, social class, everybody came together showed compassion, work together, and to me, we may be facing those same kinds of threats now. different communities, perhaps but the same sort of threat to the very survival of people in our community and so in ending, i don't want to again make the plea that we act without
11:42 pm
rancor, that we disagree civilly , that we keep our eye on the ball and work together so that we can defend ourselves. we can fight together against threats that are real to everybody in our community so, thank you. >>[applause]. >> now it's my pleasure to introduce scott waygandt i've had the pleasure of working with scott for the last eight years and can honestly thank him for so many things but i will start with this counselor which he helped put through it all the way up 24th st. to know we courts which was really quite a contentious renovation and is still underway but it's almost done. for everything
11:43 pm
that we do in the cbd i could not have done without the help of scott and his staff and andrea's power were just terrific. so i'm sorry to see zygote in our really want to thank him for all his years of service as supervisor for district 8. scott. >>[applause] >> thank you. and i'm really thrilled that we are doing this in the town square and this is just an amazing our community so thank you to everyone oh made it a reality and i will be honest, i can i will be honest it is over but bittersweet. i, even though i took office a month ago, because there wasn't another supervisor i still sort of felt like i was the supervisor for this wonderful district and people were still treating me as such and asking questions and asking for help which i was happy to provide, but this job, being on the board of supervisors, representing district 8, this amazing set of communities has
11:44 pm
been in many ways the honor of my life. i just first of all want to thank the residents of district 8 472 city hall for having the confidence in me to represent you and for working with me and my office and partnering to do so many things were this community and to try to weave these neighborhoods a better place than when we came into office. so thank you for that. that's the better part. leaving this amazing role. the sweet part is that i cannot think of a more worthy and qualified successor than jeff johnck sheet type johnck i she had. one very very flattered that some people suggested they wanted a replica of me, they actually >>[inaudible] [off mic] a little shorter, right.
11:45 pm
it's actually better to have someone who's their own person. and jeff sheehy is exactly that. i don't jeff for many years and is just an extraordinary leader and extraordinary thinker. someone who is unbelievably passionate and driven and tenacious in moving forward a strong and progressive policy agenda for our community. someone who is in his personal it has gone to hell and back and is absolutely flourished because of who he is and his strength and his family strength. jeff has been an unbelievable resource to me when i was on the board of supervisors. in terms of coming to me with ideas and being there to support our work particularly around healthcare, hiv issues. he was just an unbelievable resource and i just know he is going to do incredible work on the board of
11:46 pm
supervisors. jeff, i know that you know this but you're going to learn really quickly, this is an amazing district and so many levels. it is also a district where the residents of this district are more engaged and thoughtful and knowledgeable than you can imagine. >>[laughing]. they will call it bs on you in a heartbeat >>[laughing] and so one of the great things you can be straightforward with people and really collaborate and work together and jeff, you are going to love this job and love of working with this community. we have so much work to do. i know in the state senate we are already very focused on the title wave of toxicity that's going to come at us from washington dc. we have an administration that was to throw millions of californians off of healthcare
11:47 pm
that wants to deport many of our neighbors. that denies the climate change exists and now more than ever, not just california but san francisco, must be on the canning edge making sure we are creating that healthcare safety net. that we are protecting our immigrant communities. that we are moving towards a sustainable environmental future and i know that jeff is absolutely going to be at the forefront of those fights. so i look forward to partnering with you, jeff. so, jeff, congratulations to my complete and total support in this endeavor and congratulations everyone. thank you. >>[applause] >> i love lorraine this type. okay. now i have the privilege of introducing added that they were about 14 years ago called me into his office along with carole jenny and bob donegan said hey beth, there's this
11:48 pm
thing we want to do and it will improve public space on 24th st. and the property owners to pay for. we would like, seriously? we did and we done it and thanks to both supervisor weiner and duffy, it's a terrific street. so kevin, it is yours. >>[applause] >> good morning everyone. make no mistake, this is the job of a lifetime. and i want to thank the mayor for giving us someone who can really fill the potential for this job represents. there's a lot of cameras and reporters here. let me warn you, jeff is a very savvy tactician with the media. so for those who've not had the privilege of working with them, you will really enjoy his transparency among his intellect, and his understanding that the media plays a critical role in keeping us honest and advancing good policy and remembering those that are forgotten and ensuring that everyone knows. i want to echo what sen. weiner
11:49 pm
said, that this is an amazing district to represent those of the people, because of the awareness that people have good i am is felt when i sweated over my monthly e-mail newsletter that was a waste of time because i could tell how a gentleman would look at me at the gym asked whether he liked the book which i guess the tuesday prior in weatherly was happy or not or what about if someone would stop me in line at the safeway and this is a neighborhood is defined by its part. the how the identity of this community around parks like buena vista park and glen park and dolores park and even a small part like the record or state street all are so important and how people see and have a little bit of respite in this city. i can tell you that scott you know, said that this is a district that is transit we did know
11:50 pm
something scott did a lot of work on and i know that jeff will carry that legacy forward. but this is also the district that was represented by harvey milk and i do want to draw attention to the fact that as jeff steps into this world, it is a difficult mantle to fill. many times had people say you are no harvey milk. i know that scott and mark have experienced that in their own way. but i know that to see an individual who is a hiv-positive mother first, not to the board of supervisors, and for jeff and i to span an generation were so many of our brothers were lost due to the indifference of the federal government and a president like ronald reagan, and what we see today, that i know that jeff is ready for the task. he is ferocious. i fear him at times but he has certainly come to me in a way that is let me know that i need to get things done and i can tell you in retrospect, it is sometimes better to be feared at city hall been like at city hall. so, when that is necessary, i know that jeff
11:51 pm
will step up and do that work. but i also want to remember that jeff linda harvey milk democratic club. when he did that were, back in 1994, we had the lavender suite in san francisco get it was a very hopeless time. pete wilson was the governor. was a very difficult time. the drug had not come in to respond to the aids epidemic and in that year we elected three lgbt members to the board of supervisors, on the auto saloon they'll carole make and should be elected to lgbt members to the community college board. lawrence swamp and leslie katz what long legacies and career in public service. i want to say i think jeff is uniquely qualified to bring together this very politically diverse lgbt community. not only does he have the mantle of harvey milk but if the mantle of being for the first time in a generation, the only lgbt members of the board of supervisors. perhaps
11:52 pm
in some way that will get us together in this very important time to be more united and to recognize that working together we can accomplish much more than we can when we are divided from one another. i want to acknowledge my good friend jennifer freed mark is here from the homeless coalition to say that i know that jeff is someone is come to my office when i had the privilege of working for the mayor and brought buddies to me that showed what the outcomes were for hiv-positive women who are homeless living in a tenderloin and the amount of violence that they sustained in their lives and how that violence affected their ability to maintain treatment. so i know the compassion that jeff feels and i know that he understands that the gay community in san francisco is not an affluent community. we are like everybody else. i do want to say that if jeff were not supervisor i think would've been a member of the school board surveillance of knowledge
11:53 pm
-mendoza was here from the board of education but most of my conversations in recent years with jeff have been about our kids education. the fact that michelle is gone from the harvey milk school and got to clarendon and is now at presidio middle school and he is cared so much about her education and a belief he will be a great supervisor for those issues. so again i want to thank the mayor. i want to say it's wonderful to see all the letter to support jeff in this step, bold step, he is making and i'm so thrilled for my brother to have this opportunity. thank you. clapping. >> >> hi. now i like to introduce tiffany loan rate my neighbor and pack memory. tiffany. >>[applause] >> thank you, deb. most of you in this group don't know me. i am usually part of the background and i'm usually on that side of things. i usually get as i can know what alana were isaac maugham. sometimes
11:54 pm
talked like wife most of the time and something to that affect. although some you may know run by local classical timber music series in the neighborhood. but in the circle, i guess i'm unknown. i'm one of the least political people around but i'm incredibly civic minded. i'm neighborhood-based. i'm community center. i'm family focus. i'm a staunch supporter of the public schools here and that's how i know jeff. as part of the fabric of the community we met a few years back and when our kids were younger and we shared an idea about parents being-having a stronger voice in the community. that was the parent pac and jeff and i met in our my living room and i was incredibly, incredibly touched when we had conversations. his
11:55 pm
warmth, his kindness, his thoughtfulness, is incredibly apparent intellect and how much he cared about what his daughter was going to be exposed to and going to schools in the city and what he thought he could, wish by trying to give parents a stronger voice in the city. i was immediately drawn to him and i just felt so connected, and i was thrilled when i found out there was never the opportunity to speak. basically say, >>[inaudible] [off mic] how excited i am that you are going to be the next district 8 supervisor. i was nervous about what i might say and was talking to my 12-year-old daughter and she said, mom, all you have to set parents and families might they need a voice on the board of supervisors and so i'm thrilled that city hall and my daughter
11:56 pm
are both in-line because they got it right. so jeff is the right voice to speak for us and i am thrilled. >>[applause] >> okay. now offer final speaker, we have diane hagler was chief of hiv aids division at zuckerberg san francisco general hospital. diane. >>[applause] >> thank you so much. i'm diane hagler. most of you don't know me. i am a physician. i am a mother. raise four children with my husband here in the city of san francisco get professor at ucsf and also the head of hiv at zuckerberg san francisco general hospital. we care for about 2500 individuals living with hiv and disparities in healthcare and in our population are remarkably-with
11:57 pm
